Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful I made a decision a long time ago to live through the true conscious self. My ego is strong and healthy, but an ego-driven life is exhausting, futile, and very lonely. I’m grateful the rest of the week will be quietly without people – I enjoy my own company. And I’m grateful for my strength and forthrightness. They are my favorite qualities because without them all my other qualities wouldn’t really matter.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I’ve exercised restraint when it comes to cosmetic procedures. California is filled with custom faces, and even though mine is quite imperfect, I’m okay with it being more out-of-the-box, so to speak. I’m grateful I live in the mountains now. In times of great crisis, no one yells, “Run for the Valley!” And, I’m grateful for roasted chicken. It’s always a good dinner.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

Today was another gray, rainy day, so I’m grateful that I was occupied with work and other tasks, which helped the gloomy morning pass quickly. I’m grateful for my optimism. It’s not a family trait, and it requires some effort (and I’m determined to make a greater one). And, I’m grateful for the new growth I see in all the plants and trees. They’ve suffered these past years, and you can feel their celebratory energy.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for my resilience. I’m not the smartest or the strongest, but I keep trying. I’m grateful for people who love and support me, and I’m grateful nothing is forever.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

It was a cold and rainy day, and I’m grateful it was quiet, uneventful, and I’m home by the fire a few hours early. I’m grateful I caught a not-often played set of The Who on my way into work. They were the first concert I ever saw #thegarden. Pete Townsend is one of the most underrate musical geniuses of his generation #americanpsycho 🙂 Empty glass is truly flawless, and Roger is smokin’. It was great to hear them on the drive. Lastly, I’m grateful for the awesome fruit tart I had for lunch. A nice reward for a week of salad.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I am incapable of being angry at anyone for any length of time. People are more than their behavior. I’m grateful for restaurants, and people who make and serve food. Nothing is more important than feeding people. And. I’m grateful for hard choices. Without them we would have no true direction.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for my education. No one regrets their grad degree. I’m grateful that I have failed so many times in so many ways that I no longer fear it. #fearless. And, I’m grateful for white vinegar. It’s cheap and you can use it for a thousand things.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I realize that I am prepared enough that I don’t need to be overly prepared. I’m grateful for leftovers, and I’m grateful that I finally understand that people don’t love you the way you want the to, they love you the way that they can. #namaste

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for my view of the harvest moon, which was hanging over the mountain like a fuzzy silver earing. I’m grateful I got home in time to windproof the house. And, I’m grateful that I’m not afraid to say no. You can’t go thru life with catcher’s mitts on both hands; sometime you need to throw shit back.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

On days like today, I remember why I began to express gratitude because it’s the small things that we overlook when we’re blue. So, today I’m grateful for electricity, heat, and a warm, cozy house. I’m grateful for hot water, and how good it feels to be freshly showered and clean. I’m grateful for my favorite urban hangout, and even more grateful that I can afford to eat in a restaurant, and I’m grateful for people who are in my corner.

The end.
